Windsor Sonoma Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2009
Aromas of lemongrass, honey and citrus, with a whiff of minerality; on the palate, tropical fruit flavors blend with a touch of judicious French oak. Creamy, smooth texture, well-balanced acidity with vanilla and citrus in balance. The fruit was picked at optimum maturity for a detectable richness. Drink now through 2010.
Nice Russian River Chardonnay, a bit on the creamy side with some apricot, slight hint of butterscotch, decent balance with a medium finish. There was just a touch of sweetness when it warmed up that was just a little bit off putting.
